Bookmark and Share
Fox Valley Technical College was one of four community colleges in the nation to receive a grant from the National Association for Community College Entrepreneurship (NACCE)/Sam’s Club “Shared Vision for Small Business” competition.

FVTC earned one of the four $10,000 grant awards for demonstrating excellence in its entrepreneurship programs through the Venture Center. The grants are the cornerstone of a collaboration formed last year between NACCE, the nation’s leading organization focused on promoting entrepreneurship through community colleges, and Sam’s Club, one of the nation’s leading retailers.

Sam’s Club is providing financial support for NACCE and for members of its Presidents for Entrepreneurship Pledge, through which over 180 community college presidents have agreed to fulfill five commitments that will increase both the focus on entrepreneurship at community colleges and the impact these colleges have on the economic well-being of the communities they serve.

FVTC will deliver the Small Business Design, Plan and Grow program, an experiential learning experience that includes a three-day, 24-hour Business Model Generation Workshop and an eight-week, 24-hour E-seed Express Entrepreneurship Training Series, one-on-one coaching, and networking.

The other grant recipients are Long Beach City College, North Seattle Community College, and South Mountain Community College in Phoenix.
